Through this friendly guide, Gottry shows readers how to start, operate, and grow their own small business in any type of economy.
From the Publisher:
A guide on how to manage a small business through every phase of its life cycle draws on the author's own professional experiences of overseeing the rise, fall, and return of his company, in a manual that covers such areas as the financial, emotional, and people challenges of small businesses.

Do you own or plan to own a small business?

  • Do you work for a small business and desire to better understand your boss?
  • Do you know someone who owns a business and wants to be stronger, more focused, and more successful?

This is the book for you.

The truth is that many business books offer a lot of wonderful sounding theories, but they have little practical application in the real world of small business. Common Sense Business is full of life-and-death ideas. Follow Steve Gottry's advice and your business will live and thrive. Ignore it and your business could founder or die. Benefit from Gottry's experience as an entrepreneur who grew a hugely successful media agency, experienced a harrowing business failure, then rebounded with a new business and a fresh start on life.

Common Sense Business tells you how to succeed throughout every phase of the small business life cycle -- from starting to operating, growing, and even closing down a business. No matter the state of the economy or the maturity of your business, you will find winning solutions to the questions and situations you face every day. Steve Gottry will help you understand yourself; your employees, customers, and vendors; and how people come together to form a successful business. You will learn how to maximize your business's assets and how to ward off those threats that could eat away at your resources and peace of mind, including debt, sloppiness, addiction, and fear. Warm, honest, funny, and factual, entrepreneur Steve Gottry tells the whole truth about successfully managing a business through good times and bad.

Author Bio
Ken Blanchard
Ken Blanchard has a B.A. and a Ph.D. from Cornell University, and an M.A. from Colgate. After college, he was a teacher and administrator, and, in 1979, he and his wife, Marjorie (whom he met at Cornell), founded a training consulting firm in California. In 1981, from his experiences with his clients, Blanchard co-wrote (with Spencer Johnson) THE ONE-MINUTE MANAGER; originally self-published, it went on to sell over a million copies. Since then, he has written several more best-sellers (always with coauthors) in related fields. His books are short, crisp, practical, and full of stories, emphasizing flexibility and team playing--the human side of the business world. In addition to writing, Blanchard is also a sought-after motivational speaker, and has been an avid golfer since he began playing with his father at the age of 6.
